Is there a difference between a freckle and a beauty mark?
My husband and I are having a disagreement and I can’t find anything on the internet. Is there a difference between a freckle and a beauty mark or are they the same thing?

A beauty mark is actually a mole. You usually don’t get just one freckle, you get many. Moles are generally slightly larger and much darker, ranging anywhere from a light brown to almost black. Freckles are usually quite light.

What is the difference between Aloe Ferox and Aloe Vera?

What is the difference between Aloe Ferox and Aloe Vera?
I have been using capsules that contain ‘Aloe ferox’ and always thought it was the same as Aloe vera, just a different name for the aloe. I was just speaking to someone today who said they are both Aloe but they are by no means the same.

Why have we not heard more about the Aloe ferox and why does everyone and their uncle know about aloe vera?

Answer by Richard
Wendy,

This is a great question, I was using an aloe ferox capsule each day and like you, I thought it was another name for aloe vera. By the way, were you using the Prosit capsules from African Cures?

I have found some sites which go into details about the differences between these two aloes but I guess I could just sum it up for you before I go into all the details. The aloe ferox plant is a great deal older than the vera plant, the aloe ferox has also been used for a great deal longer than the aloe vera plant. The aloe ferox can only grow in one part of the world which is a small range in South Africa.
The aloe ferox plant is about 20 times stronger then the aloe vera and it contains about twice to three times more the essential amino acids as its cousin the vera. So now for anti-aging, healing, cleansing we should all be using the aloe ferox plant, but it has not been available to us, only through the African Cures website. This is soon to change, a company in the USA, Alofe, will be importing over 100 aloe ferox products for inside and out.

Here is a study done on the Aloe Ferox vs. The Aloe Vera:
A comparison of the chemical composition of Aloe ferox and Aloe vera was performed based on values available in the literature (Femenia 1999, Mabusela 1990). It must be noted, however, that concentrations tend to vary seasonally and geographically (Grindlay
1986).

The different monosaccharide components of the polysaccharides present in the Aloe ferox and Aloe vera gel are compared (expressed as mol%).

Monosaccharide Aloe vera Aloe ferox
(gel) (gel)

Rhamnose 1.69 3
Fucose 1.94 1
Arabinose 1.92 5
Xylose 2.34 13
Mannose 46.07 35
Galactose 4.97 5
Glucose 27.03 46

Similarly, scientific tests comparing the differences between Aloe ferox and Aloe vera plants (whole leafs), growing side by side, were performed at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in Cape Town, South Africa.

The tests demonstrated the following:

1. The freshly cut leaf of Aloe ferox produced approximately 20 times more bitter sap,
weight by weight, than the Aloe vera.

2. Aloe vera has a much softer and more translucent inner gel. It is also notably more
mucinous.

3. After extraction, the juice of the Aloe vera leaves decolourizes and loses its viscosity
much more rapidly than does the juice of Aloe ferox.

4. The solids content of the juice in Aloe ferox were constantly greater in volume than
those obtained from Aloe vera.

5. The amino acid content of Aloe ferox is almost double that of Aloe vera (see table).

Amino Acids Aloe vera Aloe ferox
(Whole Leaf) (Whole Leaf)

Glutamic acid 4.7 2.8
Asparagine 3.29 14.47
Aspartic acid 1.75 1.41
Serine 1.27 1.69
Glycine 0.95 1.25
Alanine 0.91 1.04
Glutamine 0.83 3.82
Valine ** 0.36 0.56
Threonine ** 0.33 0.9
Proline 0.25 0.46
Lysine ** 0.18 0.08
Arginine 0.12 0.05
Leucine ** 0.09 0.12
Phenylalanine ** 0.08 0.07
Isoleucine ** 0.07 0.12
Tyrosine 0.06 0.05
Cystine 0.04 0.01
Histidine 0.03 0.02
Methionine ** 0.02 0.07
Tryptophane ** 0 0
Total Concentration
(nMol/mg dry mass) 15.33 28.99

Aloe ferox and Aloe vera contain 7 of the 8 essential (** in table) amino acids and all the
other 12 non-essential amino acids.
Similarly the mineral concentrations of Aloe vera (Femenia 1999) were compared to typical
concentration measured in Aloe ferox (expressed as % of dry matter).

Minerals Aloe vera Aloe ferox
(Whole Leaf) (Whole Leaf)

Calcium (Ca) 3.58 8.82
Magnesium (Mg) 1.22 1.68
Sodium (Na) 3.66 3.08
Potassium (K) 4.06 6.3
Phosphorus (P) 0.02
Iron (Fe) 0.1 0.54
Copper (Cu) 0.06 0.04
Zinc (Zn) 0.02 0.8

It is evident that Aloe ferox contains a higher concentration of these minerals, which can potentially ascribed to its harvesting in its natural habitat and not in domesticated fields. As can be seen the chemical composition of Aloe vera is comparable to that of Aloe ferox.

I am an African American woman. I plan on spraying my hair daily with aloe vera gel to moisturize my hair. I will add a tablespoon of glycerine to it. Is this okay?

What’s the difference between physical beauty and sexual beauty?

  • Posted on November 9, 2009 at 10:34 am

What’s the difference between physical beauty and sexual beauty?
Some people have physical beauty and don’t have sexual beauty some vice versa.
PS: Sexual beauty is related for men to have muscles(to be sexy) and for women to have shapes(sorry for the rude word don’t anger on me)…to be sexy.
Physical beauty is related to all the parts of the body, to body as a whole.

Can you tell me the difference between them?

What would you choose between the beauty of innocence and the innocence of beauty?

What would you choose between the beauty of innocence and the innocence of beauty?
Again…..what would you choose between the beauty of innocence and the innocence of beauty?
Someone mighty say beauty is evidently displayed but innocence is hidden, others would prefer both, but suppose you accept the dilemma between the two what would you choose.
As a lady what would you like people to esteem you for, between your beauty , if any, and the innocence in you if any?

Answer by Paladin
Physical beauty is merely skin deep, and innocence is fine in children but not in adults.

I would not place either on a list alongside such true virtues as gentleness, sincerity, courage, perseverance, courteousness, and loyalty.
